Description

From the swooping front long racing style hood, to the simple 4 round lighted rear with just a touch of spoiler, this car presents in a respray of a blue tinted charcoal metallic finish. Showing some chips, scratches, light spider cracking and inclusions in the paint, it is not perfect, but still beautifully designed. These flaws can only be noticed upon careful inspection and disappear when more than 5 feet away from the body. Hidden headlights up front give it an aerodynamic feel and the black and stainless rocker trim compliments this body style nicely, and for some sun, you can pop off the body-colored panels of the roof. A long and curved greenhouse rear glass covers a large storage area in the rear. Earlier style deep dish rally wheels adorn the corners and are wrapped in Cooper Cobra raised white letter rubber.
In wonderful 1980's style the overstuffed padded bolster seats with deep inserts and high backs provide the seating for this ride. Nearly no age-based wear and folds are present in the red leather of these seats. These are floating in a sea of like new red carpeting which is protected by carpeted mats. A red dash can be seen upfront, and while the raked angle remains for the dash, gauges are now behind a flat piece of clear plastic with some midpoint warning lights stacked next to these gauges. In the center the cluster of 5 gauges remains and just below is an aftermarket stereo neatly inserted courtesy of Alpine with AM/FM/CD capabilities. Temp wheels of the past are now sliders and on the center of the console is a black ball topped chrome shifter and power window controls with some wear to the black insert. The side door panels, like the seats, appear as new with a sensual mix of padded red leather and lush red carpet. The rear carpeted storage area under the greenhouse glass shows as new with the addition of aftermarket speakers.
With all this charcoal and red we don't want to forget the red line that is on the tachometer and to get there under the hood is a 350ci V8 circa 1969 through 1979 according to the casting number. A RV camshaft has been installed in this engine and a new 4-barrel Edelbrock carburetor is atop an Edelbrock intake manifold and shiny valve covers and an air cleaner cover can be seen. Some patina and surface rust is noted within this engine bay but overall things are looking fab. There is a non original TH350 3-speed manual transmission bolted to the back of the engine with a 3.07 rear axle in the back. A new radiator has been installed at the front of this well-kept engine bay.
